The following table is the to-hit modifiers when trying to hit targets of different sizes in hand-to-hand and missile combat. All species will have a Target Size listed. These sizes appear as Very Small (VS), Small (S), Medium (M), Large (L), Huge (H) and Massive (MS).

These modifiers work like this; if a Small (S) character is trying to hit a Huge (H) character the Small character would receive a +30 bonus to their attack. The Huge (H) character would receive a –30 penalty to hit the Small target. Larger opponents, due to their size, are easier to hit, smaller opponents are more difficult and opponents of equal size are unmodified.
